thrift find - plaques
I originally took these photos so that I wouldn't buy these plaques. But then I just couldn't resist them. They were too cute not to come home with me. They remind me of Strawberry Shortcake characters (which I love!).
Do you ever take photos of things so that you won't buy them? It usually helps me not to buy things because sometimes I just really like looking at them and a photo will do.

those are adorable! i love the colors. and i've never tried taking a photo of something instead of buying it....that's a great idea though.ReplyDelete
i know i've taken a photo of something to try to recreate it...but it usually ends up in a disaster haha ;)
I totally do take pictures to things I love so I wont spent any money on them. Sometimes I end up buying them anyway like you did, I guess there are things that just convince us no matter what we do to avoid them :/ReplyDelete
They remind me of Strawberry Shortcake too! And yes I have done that! I works most of the time!ReplyDelete
Those plaques are adorable. They remind me of some Holly Hobbies ones my Mom made for me when I was little. She made her plaques out of plaster of paris though.ReplyDelete
Actually, I'm always super scared to take photo's inside a store.ReplyDelete
The first time I ever tried, I was told by an angry manager to put away my camera. Ever since then I've been a scardy cat.
The one on the left reminds me of Holly Hobbie. :) I really love the one on the right though! Looks like something I would want to wear. <3ReplyDelete
What an epic find!! Those are adorable. And yes, sometimes I just snap a pic if I can't afford the goodie at the time xReplyDelete
What an awesome find!! Love 'em! =)ReplyDelete
oh my goodness!! What sweet finds! :)ReplyDelete
Those are adorable! I wouldn't have been able to resist them either!ReplyDelete
I do take pics of things so I won't buy them! Sometimes it's things that I like but want to make myself, like overpriced clothing. Other times it's things that I intend to buy at some point and don't want to forget about.
Oh wow, they are soooooo pretty!ReplyDelete
Yes! I do the same thing. I take pictures so I don't have to buy it/them...but usually those pics are on my phone and I forget about them once I leave the store.ReplyDelete
also... I too totally thought of strawberry shortcake when I saw those girls, and then I said to myself "that's not strawberry shortcake. remember we all use to wear bonnets." ok, so I'm dating myself, but in the very early eighties, we were bonnets :)
thats actually a great idea because my shopaholic ass always buys everything haha. those plaques are such a sweet buy!ReplyDelete
so sweet! the girl on the right totally reminds me of you!!!ReplyDelete
These are really cool! I COMPLETELY understand what you mean about taking photos of something to keep you from buying it! I do the same thing!ReplyDelete
oh they are lovely! Such sweet colours :)ReplyDelete
Yes, I take photos of things hoping that will be enough and I won't have to buy them.... doesn't always work though! x
These are amazing, and I think it would have been an absolute pity if they weren't yours! I always try the picture trick, but it never works. I have a problem. I need thrifters AnonymousReplyDelete
I love those! Way too cute! The characters remind me of a blanket I had when I was little :)ReplyDelete
The one with the bow kinda reminds me of a freckled you ;)ReplyDelete
these are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
i have never done that before... but that would probably help with a LOT of my overspending hehe!!!ReplyDelete
yea, I wouldn't have been able to just leave it at photos either. those pretty ladies would go perfectly on my crazy picture wall. And by wall I mean room. The pictures are taking over the entire roomm.ReplyDelete
